25. Florida really needs tropical storms to hit on a regular basis to replenish the water tables
But with as high a population as there is now, that might not do enough. Of course, if there are many years like the one that had Bonnie, Charlie, Frances, and Ivan all hit the state, the population may start to drop which could be a good thing. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_Atlantic_hurricane_se... )

Florida has been flirting with abusing their water resources for a long time - that is why we have water management districts to try to control usage. The "Swiftmud" referred to in the OP article is the water management district for the Plant City area. Ironically, the name Swiftmud comes from the phosphate mining company Swift and one of their slurry holding areas.
